[Balance] Types of Imbalance - Static

Static Imbalance

This Figure illustrates the static imbalance concentrated mass at the TWA centerline. The centrifugal forces are shown as continuous waveforms, which will be analyzed to determine mr.

Static imbalance can be simulated as a weight that is split evenly onto the top and bottom planes.

As a vehicle travels at a high rate of speed, the passengers may experience a bouncing sensation which is typical of static imbalance.
